We have purchased some ad removal for the DoG board. To be specific, we purchased 5 USD (US Dollars) worth of ad removal for the boards which breaks down into 1,000 ad free page views per every .18 cents. So, we had 28,000 ad-free page views as of 0845 PT and we're already down to approx 27,200 @ 1435 PT!
Needless to say, the cost of keeping ads off of the boards can add up especially considering how active a lot of our members are.
So, the minimum amount of ad removal that we can purchase at a time is 5 USD, but we can always purchase more provided we have the funds. So where do we get the funds? That leads to the next point.
Since the purchase of ad removal is a potential benefit to ALL board members, it's only fair if we ALL have the opportunity to chip in. We have included a PayPal donation button on the board portal page. It is located in the upper left hand corner block. It is the only donation button there, so you can't miss it. Big, bright, yellow thing you know...
DONATION FOR AD REMOVAL IS OPTIONAL!
It is NOT required that you donate! The purchase of ad removal was for the benefit of the board and the enjoyment of it's members. Think of the initial purchase as a Christmas gift from your admins! However the cost of maintaining the ad removal (especially if it is enjoyed by all) will not fall on the same few shoulders. The only consequence of not donating is our inability to continue keeping the DoG ad-free. 'Nuff said.
This is a great opportunity to vote with your wallets! If you do not care about ad removal, then don't donate. It's as simple as that. If you enjoy your experience on the boards more because of the ad removal and want them to continue staying ad-free, then we absolutely encourage you to donate to the maintenance of our ad-free state!
Please PM Grell with any questions, comments or concerns you may have. We hope you enjoy the current ad-free status of the board!
